Authorities believe a man stabbed a woman, got into an accident, jumped into a police SUV that responded to the crash and then crashed again, Dayton Police Maj. Eric Henderson told the Dayton Daily News.
Police took a suspect into custody, the newspaper reported. He is also receiving treatment at a hospital, but his condition was not immediately available.
Henderson initially said three of the hospitalized had suffered life-threatening injuries, but it was not clear whether that included the two fatalities he later confirmed to the newspaper. Seven of the hospitalized were children, Henderson said.

The incident comes three weeks after a shooter killed nine people and wounded 17 others in the citys Oregon District.
The accident near Dayton Metro Library involved up to three cars, Henderson said. A van in the crash carried seven children, witness Denorris Hopgood told WHIO-TV.
Another car hit the stolen police SUV in an intersection, witness Tiffany Hamiel told the Daily News. One vehicle then spun around and hit cars parked near the library, she said.

I was terrified, Hamiel told the newspaper. There were car parts flying all over the street.
Twelve minutes before the crash, Henderson said police received a complaint of a stabbing. Between the crash and the stabbing, police said they believe the man was involved in another crash.

Witness Jonathan Poston told the newspaper he saw a man running back and forth in the street near wrecked vehicles. When a responding Riverside police officer got out of his SUV, Poston said the man jumped into the passenger side and locked the doors.
The officer then unlocked the doors and tased the suspect, Poston said, but the suspect fought with the officer and sped away. Another police vehicle chased him but failed to stop him, Poston told the newspaper.

Ive never seen anybody get tased and not fall down immediately, let alone fight back with a police officer and take his vehicle, Poston said.
